Welcome, Again

Last year, I started my video experiment. I bought a camera, filmed a road trip, and thought it was a pretty cool medium. When I realized that what I was doing was no longer a cool hobby but rather the next step in my communications ministry, I threw together a welcome video to set the tone for the channel. It was fun and a little corny, but it got the job done. I was happy with what I had made on such short notice and with almost no video background, and it worked.

After a year, things have changed. That quirky little video we filmed outside of the Church one day wasn’t cutting it for me anymore. The cheesy jokes about Jedi and Medieval Festivals weren’t doing it for me anymore. I wanted something that better reflected where I was now, a year later, and what I hoped to accomplish in the future. I didn’t want a welcome video, I wanted a trailer.

And so, with time on my hands before things get crazy at the parish, that’s what I did.

  1. Dear Casey,
    Thanks so much for sharing your journey. I am the formation director for Our Lady Queen of the Angels Secular Franciscan Order and look forward to sharing your trailer with my Fraternity. Your Aunt Mary is one of my good friends here in Lancaster, Pa. She and I just love following you along on your journey.
    May God keep blessing you,
    Julie Rasp, OFS

  2. I think I’m Brother Casey’s biggest fan. My “favorites” column is half Brother Casey and I go back and look at and read the entries of my favorite Franciscan often.

  3. Nice job Brother Casey. Praying you peace and all good as you reach out to others with the message of the Gospel inspired by your love for Christ and the Little Poor Man.

  4. Just keeps getting better! Thanks, Casey; may God continue to guide and bless your ministry to reach all who “have ears to hear”.

  5. Brother Casey,

    Excellent job, man! At the risk of being an occasion for you of a small sin against humility… you’re communications talents are really quite good! You can be rightly pleased with the product of your efforts. It’s evident that among your gifts/talents, “communications” is a valuable contribution for you to share with the body of Christ.
    Of course, the lived witness of your life in Christ is paramount, but the effective utilization of communications media to share that with the world helps multiply the effect to inspire/motivate others.
    Again Brother, well done! Keep the faith, and keep up the good work.
    May our good and gracious God continue to bless you and your ministries in abundance, as you continue your life’s ongoing conversion journey!

    Peace,
    Liam

  6. Brother Casey, Nice work. In my role as an RCIA director it is important to be able to use multiple resources to present the faith. I find your thought provoking presentations excellent tools to drive discussion. As I read/view your posts it is clear that your story is meaningful to a wide range of people, those considering vocations yes, but also anyone discerning the impact of faith in their life—will it define them, or do they wish to try to define their faith.
